Statistically speaking, there are now more than 150 million street orphans and also in orphanages, who were born in Africa, Nigeria or other underdeveloped countries.
In addition, in recent times, many children have gone astray and abandoned at random as a result of wars and, due to religious intolerance in those countries that propagate a holy war, among Jews, Muslims and Christians, many of these orphans, accompanied not only by the torment of these human atrocities, and by the constant suffering due to the death of their parents, are victims of the abuses of those who take advantage of their incapable situation, in which malicious people exploit their smallness and consequent frailty to obtaining illicit gains.Girls below the year of innocence being forced into true sexual abuse, who after suffer this kind of abuse obscure and diabolical, report to the Lord our God in prayer, asking if God really exists and why he does nothing to save them.
We all know, and no one on the day of judgment can claim that did not know! As soon as a child is born here on earth, she needs affection and love. But when they are abandoned, or lose their fathers to death, and there is no near kinsman to take them in, then they are deprived of such care; small eyes that wander through the vastness, empty of emotions and full of loneliness are what they become, uncertain of the future, unaware of the affectivity of a family. Poor souls who carry the torture of the dislike of their parents and the like. Without this, the children of Christ, who are also our children, live in fear of tomorrow, in emotional dismay, thrown into the streets or orphanages.
Most of the time they remain there until they reach adulthood, they finally end up without any reference to the society that awaits them, and with that they fall into perdition, vices, robberies and prostitution. And there are still those who are already on the streets, in the cold of the night, indulging themselves still small, to all sorts of human slander, and thus, numb their senses with any kind of drug, in order to lighten the weight of so vile and cruel reality that surrounds them; to these, not a home rehabilitates them, but a strong organization that can rescue them through faith, repentance and baptism for the regeneration of their lives in Christ Jesus. Should not this organization be those who profess to be your church?
Here is a question for our reflection: "Is there really any religion among the sons of men that truly cares about these little ones? Is there, perhaps, any organization among the Latter-day Saint movement that originated from the restoration of the gospel, that in fact corresponds to the one who truly must visit the orphans in their tribulations in the sight of God?
Many eloquent men rise up in the pulpits of the churches that originated from the restoration in 1830 and boast of their number of members and inflame the chest of pride when they claim that they are the only true church alive on the face of the earth, that they are representatives of Jesus Christ, and by giving food to hungry little ones in countries below the poverty line, exhibit the world a small part of everything they gather from the people with tithes and offerings, and exalt themselves in saying that they meet the requirements of the true religion described in James 1 : 27, when, in fact, retains most of it for the ostentation of its beautiful sanctuaries which represent nothing to the Lord our God in the present time, when, at last, could with amount end this cruelty between the children of men and, with that , bring true honor and glory to the name God and His Son Jesus!
What then to say of those who are endorsed as "living prophet" of God on earth, who call themselves revelators of their will to the people of their church in these last days, and so soon are revered by millions of members who heed their words , whatever they may be, as if it were the Lord's own voice among the children of men, and yet they do nothing toward the true orphans, who, almost at every instant, cry to God for help, for hunger, for cold, for a hug of a mother who never had, for a normal family life?
What the Lord could want from his 'living prophet' Besides do than cry out to the people of his church, that they might indeed experience the pure and immaculate religion, which truly binds us again, creature and Creator, in a perfect bond of union, and require of those who have conditions among his people, to visit, and finally to welcome (adopt) an orphan in his tribulations?
No! In fact, this act in itself, would not end with that evil magnified by our modern society, the abandonment of minors. These adopted children would become adults in good homes and become distinct citizens because of the gospel of Christ in their lives and would add in the near future a few thousand adults who know well the life in the streets and orphanages, and finally, following this same principle, in a few generations, there would be no such thing in the world."
